VB.NET - How do I set and keep data in the clipboard?

P: n/a
This is how I setup clipboard in my application:

dim template as string = "put to clipboard"
Clipboard.SetDataObject(template)

And it all works like a charm until I close my program.
As soon as the program is closed I lose the clipboard as well.

Is there any way to keep the data in clipboard even that my application
is already closed?

Please let me know, this is crucial for my software functionality and I
spent lot of time already trying to figure it out.

Martin,

There is an overloaded version of SetDataObject that lets you specify
whether or not the data should remain in the clipboard after your app closes:

Clipboard.SetDataObject(template, True)
